Product Description

Amazon.ca

Battlestar Galactica's season 2.5 (i.e., the final 10 episodes of the second season) picks up where season 2.0 (the first 10 episodes) left off: Galactica's giddy reunion with the Pegasus had taken a sour turn when Admiral Cain (Michelle Forbes) went back on her word to Commander Adama (Edward James Olmos) and decided to integrate the crews, moving Apollo (Jamie Bamber) and Starbuck (Katee Sackhoff) to Pegasus. The animosity, combined with an attack on Sharon (Grace Park), threatens to derail a golden opportunity for the fleet to strike the Cylons where they'll hurt, and stay hurt--their resurrection ship.

In many ways, Sharon is the central character. The attack lands Helo (Tahmoh Penikett) and the Chief (Aaron Douglas) in hot water; her impending baby remains the subject of heated debate among president Laura Roslyn (Mary McDonnell), Commander Adama, and others; and a rebellious movement determined to force Galactica to give up the Cylon ends up threatening both Apollo and Starbuck and putting further strain on their already-shaky relationship. Dr. Baltar (James Callis) becomes even more intertwined with the Cylons when he discovers another version of Number Six (Tricia Helfer) on the Pegasus, but is also in line to take over the presidency as Roslin's cancer reaches a critical stage. Battlestar Galactica's inexorable dramatic arc sagged in a couple episodes during this run, but the terrific two-part season finale involving a presidential election, a glimmer of hope for humanity, and some unexpected turns of events makes for a thrilling springboard to season 3. Battlestar is often called the best sci-fi show on television, but that seems like damning it with faint praise; it's the best drama on television.

In addition to the 10 episodes, the three-DVD set has an extended version of the last episode of season 2.0, "Pegasus"; the extra 15 minutes include a longer conversation in which Cain reveals her plans to Adama. That episode has a commentary track by executive producers Ronald D. Moore and David Eick, Moore's podcast commentaries are on every other episode, and Eick's "video blogs" serve as casual featurettes on series production. --David Horiuchi

5.0 out of 5 stars Best show on television keeps getting better... Sept. 19 2006
Format:DVD
I was one of those people who was really hesitant with the original mini-series once I had heard the idea of the "reinvention". I had fond memories of the original series and wasn't sure of what to make of it. However, the mini-series won me over in a big way and in actual fact I now prefer the reimagined Battlestar Galactica to the original.

Season 1 of the regular BSG series was everything the mini-series was and more. The writing proved to be some of the best writing on television and the production and performance value was outstanding. Season 2 just kept on getting better and the second half of season 2 encompasses some of the finest produced television shows of modern time.

From the discovery of the Pegasus and the tensions that arise as two commanding officers of opposing styles clash, through to one of the biggest jaw-droppers of a cliffhanger ending I have ever seen, BSG just continues to set the pace for modern television. This is one show that doesn't disappoint, and season 2 certainly makes for a fraking good time.

2.0 out of 5 stars No reason to buy May 24 2012
By Oxmus
Format:Blu-ray
Since the episodes of season 4.5 (blu-ray version) are already included in the season 4 package, along with the Razor film, why buy this one. Well I did, since the description didn't mention it! Now I'm trying to return both Razor and 4.5, but since I've had to remove the plastic to see my mistake, I have gone against return policy. Be careful before you buy (caveat emptor).

5.0 out of 5 stars out of control ....... Sept. 21 2006
By Paul Shikata TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I can't tell you how hooked i am with this show.........

well, maybe i can......

this set arrived today......

i watched all 11 episodes in a row ..... luckily i had the time !

believe the hype ..... its all true ..... i don't really watch much television, as i've never had cable

i am now tempted to, as i'm not sure if i can wait till next summer to see what happens in season 3 on dvd......

when you listen to the commentaries, you realize how high the standards are in regards to the love and care these guys take in THINKING about and making these shows. its fun to hear an executive producer talk about an episode he felt didn't work too well / could've worked better .....

as a viewer my first reaction to season 2.5 is that it was, for me, quite simply one of the most engaging, exciting and worthwhile times spent in front of a television screen. beyond your regular tv experience. for me these episodes and the show in general are a very cathartic experience ....

recommend that you start with the mini series and watch EVERY episode...... of course, if you're a fan, you know this already.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Series Sept. 24 2006
By Steven R. McEvoy HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This new DVD release is full of special features and bonus material to attract all viewers. The split season format is great. It airs as half season's on Sci-Fi and they release it to match it's airing schedule and system. There is so many special features, you could spend more time watching them then the actual episodes.

The special features include deleted scenes, the producer'spodcasts that aired on the Sci-Fi channel's website during the original airings, and the producer's video Logs and much much more. The deletes scenes are broken down episode by episode. The first episode of this half of the season is a special extended version of the Pegasus that did not air due to time constraints.

The characters are further developed in this half of season 2 also the writing is excellent. The cliffhanger ending leave's you mouthwatering and awaiting season 3. The Sci-Fi channel has to date released 4 of 10 web episodes that have story line development between season's 2 and 3. Season 3 begins airing in the US and Canada on October 7th for the first time the episodes will air in both countries at the same time. We here in Canada will not have to wait days, weeks or months for the US show to finally come to Canada.

This DVD box set is worth every penny.

By K. Gordon TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
One of my favorite television series of all time along with 'The Wire'
and 'Breaking Bad'.

Like 'The Wire' this is a complex, Dickensian study of human nature,
not afraid of asking big questions, and meticulously plotted like a
great novel, so that each episode is a chapter in a much larger whole.

Just as 'The Wire' used the overly familiar cliché' world of the cop
show to jump off from and shatter our preconceptions, and 'Battlestar
Galactica' uses the sci-fi series, and the idea of human versus robot
wars the same way.

This is thinking person's sci fi, in the tradition of Arthur C. Clarke,
or Isaac Asimov. It's about why we are how we are, what it means to be
a human being, morality under constant pressure in times of war,
fathers and sons, impossible loves, metaphors for modern and recent
politics and real world situations.

My wife, far from a sci-fi fan was hooked after 3 episodes, and we tore
through 5 years of shows in just a few days. It's that addicting.

The acting is all at least quite good, and some cast members are
remarkable, creating characters full of depth, complexity and
contradiction. The writing is terrific, allowing the characters to
change and grow, but always in ways that make sense, creating seemingly
inexplicable conundrums, only to find surprising, sometimes shocking -
but ultimately logical and satisfying - ways to explain where they've
taken us. The special effects are generally very impressive for TV,
even if they're not really why you watch this show.

It also has some of the most tense episodes of television I've ever
seen, and some of the season enders left me completely wrung out and
blown away.

5.0 out of 5 stars It is among the very best tv ever made
Really, can't get better than that. With West Wing, The Sopranos, Seinfeld and of couple of other shows, it is as good as a tv show will ever get. As simple as that.
